New Life Croydon

Type: Church

Affiliations and accreditations

New Life is a large, vibrant church which meets in the heart of central Croydon, South London. Our church is made up of people of many different ages, backgrounds and nationalities. Our fellowship is in the evangelical and Pentecostal/charismatic traditions that lay emphasis on Bible based faith and an ongoing experience of the Holy Spirit.
Our Vision

We believe God has called us to be a growing, influential, Bible-believing church drawn from every section of society with a heart for Croydon, the United Kingdom and the nations.

Our Values

God calls us to share the reality of the good news about Jesus Christ with our local community and beyond. To do this, we seek God’s guidance for the most effective ways to reach non-Christians. When our present building was opened, we were encouraged to see it as a fishing boat from which we could reach out, drawing people into God’s kingdom.


As a church, we are particularly responsible for looking after and caring for our church family. We aim to provide good quality pastoral care, as well as diverse opportunities for people to meet and share their lives with others.


As leaders of New Life, our desire is to see everyone who is part of New Life to become more and more Christ-like in character, attitudes and actions. We want to see the local body of Christ built up as men and women mature in the gifts and callings they have received from the Lord. As God has blessed us at New Life, we also wish to help other communities of believers in the UK and overseas.
